Default Best discs for flicking.....

I throw RHBH and at times seems like the flick or forehand is needed to get around obstacles or get out of trouble....any tips on what to use?

Lots of threads on this forum, so if you want more details you could always search.

So as a beginner to forehands, an overstable disc is always the best choice. An overstable disc compensates for poor form. Beginners tend to really snap the disc to try and get it to go far, which makes it so easy to turn over less stable discs. Its best to practice with the overstable disc and work your way down to stable and understable discs (which will need a lot of hyzer angle).

I also recommend starting from a speed 7 or 8 driver. I learned how to flick with a brinster teebird, which really helped me figure out how to get distance. So I would suggest an overstable teebird. If you want extra distance, or you find you are turning over a teebird (know that it is probably a form issue), the next disc you should try is a firebird. I've worked my way up to destroyers (and my katana occasionally) but it would've been very difficult to start from there and expect any progress.

If you are looking for something that will dependably fade at medium range, a Trident is solid, Firebirds are pretty essential, maybe a XXX, possibly a Whippet or Banshee. Something slower would be a Drone or Zone. There are so many options available.

If you're just looking to add something for a hard right, then something overstable is the way to go.

However , if you're looking to actually learn a nice forehand, I'd reccomend just sticking with what you have. Although I have no idea what you have. I guess I'm assuming you have somewhat neutral fairways and mids in your bag.

I'm not much of a forehander but when I must an MVP Resistor is hard to resist.

Thanks for chiming in, this thread was destined for failure until you saved the day.

Learn to flick a neutral mid, don't start with a driver. Say maybe an Element X, if you can find one, or an Alias. Both are forgiving for small errors but will still provide enough feedback to improve your flick.
